Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club – Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Our Cooking Light‘s Virtual Supper Club meets again! This month’s theme is based on Regional Cuisine…dishes inspired by the flavors of our own local regions. The ladies in our group came together to create a fantastic dinner party that I only wish I could actually be attending in real life! Our menu this month is as follows:

Bruschetta with Peach Salsa and Melted Brie by Val (British Columbia)
Spinach Salad with Maple-Dijon Vinaigrette
by Helene
Pan-Seared Shrimp Po-Boys by Jamie (Pensacola, Florida)
Double Maple Cupcakes by Shelby (Upstate New York)
Key Lime Pie
by Aggie
(Central Florida)

You can pretty much find Key Lime Pie on any restaurant menu in Florida…in fact, did you know that Key Lime Pie is the official Florida state pie? (I actually didn’t until I googled it recently…) The juice used in making this sweet but tart pie is from Key limes, which are found in none other than the Florida Keys. I actually have a Key Lime tree in my backyard, it’s still a baby so no limes yet, but I am looking forward to the day when I can go out back and find some of these cute little fruits on the tree! If you don’t have access to fresh Key limes, look for Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice in your grocery store…its amazing and worked perfectly for this pie!

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie is traditionally made with egg yolks, key lime juice and condensed milk…how do you lighten it up you ask? Well, Cooking Light did a great job in doing so…using a combination of egg whites and whole eggs, and fat free condensed milk. The flavor of the key lime juice is so distinct, you can hardly taste the difference. It’s nice to know that I can enjoy my favorite dessert without the guilt! And it’s hard not imagining yourself beach side while eating a slice!

Oh and P.S….Key Lime Pie should always have a pale yellow custard filling…stay away from the green pies!!

  26. Yummy key lime pie! I really need to try more CL desserts. This one looks absolutely fabulous. So summery.
    I always buy frozen edamame. I keep some in the pods for snacking and some that are shelled for cooking. My kids loove it. My favorite brand is SeaPoint Farms. The ones in the pod are lightly salted so they taste super yummy.
    Probably tmi, but that's me!
